At Marbecks Foodstore, tripling as a café, deli and specialty grocery store, the shelves are stocked with a huge variety of nationally and internationally sourced specialty food products. There’s everything from essentials like Maldon Sea Salt and high quality olive oils, through to locally produced Otago Chocolate Company chocolate, Wellington-made Fix and Fogg Peanut Butter and selected ranges of Mexican, Asian and Italian cooking products. The store also offers a beautiful selection of kitchenware.

Booze is offered here too. There’s a small, but well-curated selection of predominantly Central Otago wine, as well as craft beer - sold from the tap so that you can fill your own riggers, or your jam jar too if you’re simply after a taste of a new brew. Emerson’s dominates the craft beer tap offerings.

Expect a deli well stocked with cured meats and cheese sold by the weight, olives and sundried tomatoes and the like. There’s fresh bread, of course, making this perhaps one of the best places in town to gather goodies for an antipasto platter.

The café makes use of many of the ingredients that feature in the store space, in its cabinet and menu offerings. Coffee is made using Supreme beans, and tea is by Harney and Sons; beans and leaves are available to take home as well. For those who love cooking and eating, this is a Dunedin must-visit.
